Digital Electronics



The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has been established in the year 1980 and a full time M. Tech. program started in the year 1992. The department is recognised as the Research Centre by VTU, Belagavi in the year 2002 and attained autonomous status in the year 2007. Thus the department has shown its progress in various dimensions. The present intake for UG is 120 and for PG, it is 18. The UG program has been accredited thrice and PG program has been accredited twice by National Board of Accreditation, New Delhi. With the vision of fostering excellence in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering, we provide quality education through the state-of-the-art curriculum, effective teaching learning process, encouragement to innovation, inculcating research culture and building team spirit among students.

Many of our UG and PG alumni are holding key positions in private and public sector organizations, R&D organizations and some of them are also the successful entrepreneurs. With no complacency, we strive hard to achieve greater laurels in the years to come. There are well qualified and experienced faculty with 50% doctorates in the areas of Signal Processing, Communication Systems, VLSI Design and Embedded Systems and most of the remaining pursuing Ph.D. There are well equipped classrooms and laboratories with industry standard software tools such as Cadence 6, Lab view 14.0, Xilinx 14.7i, Keil 5, MATLAB 2014 B, high end FPGA kits, ARM boards and Software Defined Radio kits. There are several ongoing R&D funded projects worth total of above Rs. 70 lakh. Internship program and industry sponsored projects are carried out by students.
